Lindsay Lohan’s rep Leslie Sloane Zelnik assured Star magazine that the 20-year-old wasn’t “banned” from Justin Timberlake’s gig earlier this month at L.A.’s House of Blues by the former *NSYNC star’s management, as The Sun reported — and had the wrong weekend of the show to boot. “That’s not true, as Hilary Duff was banned [too],” the rep explained. “No one under 21 was allowed.”
